March 9, 2008




SORRENTO, Fla. –
Senior Whitney Brummett shot a two-over par 74 and is Florida State’s leading golfer in a tie for 46th place after the first round of the UCF Challenge to Benefit The Florida Children’s Hospital at Red Tail Golf Club. Brummett played very consistently during the first 18 holes of the 54-hole event with 15 holes at par or better. The Seminoles are in 17th place in the team standings with two rounds left to be played.

Southern California, the nation’s No. 3 ranked team according to GolfStat, holds a one stroke lead over top ranked Duke in an event which is hosting 14 of the nation’s top 25 teams. Southern California leads the field with three golfers in the top 10 of the individual standings. Alison Whitaker of Duke leads the individual standings as she carded a seven-under par score of 65. She holds a one-stroke lead over Cydney Clanton of Auburn.

Brummett (Eureka, Mo.), who started her round on the backside (hole No. 10) of the course, was even par of the first eight holes of her round and finished her first nine holes at one-over par. She was also one-over par over her second nine holes with six holes of par, one birdie and on two bogeys. Brummett’s score of 74 was better than each of her three scores during last week’s spring season-opening Lady Puerto Rico Classic and the third best score of the fall and spring seasons.

Senior Whitney Wright (Rockingham, N.C.) and junior All-American Caroline Westrup (Ahus, Sweden) carded identical scores of 75 and are tied for 58th in the individual standings. Junior Lauren Cousart (Athens, Ga.) and Macarena Silva (Santiago, Chile) are tied for 84th place in the individual standings.

The second round of the event begins at 8:00 a.m. Monday morning.
